For Greater Glory (2012)

A very important movie to see in this time when the government is taking away our religious liberty. This is Mexico in 1926 when President Plutarco Elias Calles signs into law a provision that restricts religious freedom. The Cristeros fight against the government for their religious freedom. St. Anthony Messenger reports this is a well-crafted and finely acted film. It stays close to the historical record. Two of the central characters, José Luis Sánchez and Anacleto Gonzolas Flores were beatified by Pope Benedict XVI in 2005.

I saw the movie as part of our local Fortnight for Freedom. The movie is sincere, but, sadly, flawed. See it out of interest; it tells some forgotten history. But I don't think it will be considered more than just an okay film.
